KCC Approves KBS Proposal of License Fee Hike

2011/02/18 | 275 views | Permalink | Source

The Korea Communications Commission (KCC) has approved a KBS proposal to raise the public broadcaster's license fee by one-thousand won to 35-hundred won per month.

With the KCC's consent, the proposal is now subject to the approval of the National Assembly.
If passed at Parliament, the license fee will be raised for the first time in 30 years.

The KCC said on Friday that despite a lack of sufficient grounds for the hike, there is a need to actively consider it to help the public broadcaster move towards a solid financial structure.

The commission also advised that KBS use the increased funds from the fee hike to faithfully implement its public responsibilities, such as removing areas with poor reception. KCC also suggested a need to review the license fee in 2014.
